It's quite blatantly obvious that you've never deployed, much less served, in the military.
While service members take a generally libertarian view of what people are getting up to in private, the actual business of being in a military unit is surprisingly sex-free. The co-ed nature of line units is a policy decision foisted by Progressives.
There is a distinction to be drawn between racial integration, which makes massive sense, and co-ed units, which add zero (0) combat value to units.
If you took a truly anonymous survey of our military, I predict you'd find a plurality that, while freely admitting that they serve with some excellent ladies (I know I did) would still taper off their participation to a minimum. Because you Don't. Win. Wars. With. Social. Engineering.
Then again, our contemporary policy doesn't seem to be about winning wars. So keep the ladies around, I guess.

I stated before that GWB would have eventually signed off on the abolition of DADT in the military.

I stand in admiration of your capacity to Make Stuff Up, then treat your own utterances as received wisdom, e.g. "Obama is a conservative President".
You are Teh Man.
Meanwhile, where is the next installment of Karl's Folly?
